action. now, depending -- the pentagon has drawn up preliminary plans to send as many as 75,000 troops into syria to secure these chemical weapons sites, but as of just today there have been no signs that any of those forces have been put on alert or there was any detail planning to do this. so there was some question here of whether assad may be calling t president's bluff. >> rose: and what exactly do you think they would be prepared to do and what would trigger that? clearly the movement of them. but it is more or less than that? >> well, u.s. intelligence officials were watching very closely the movement of syrian forces and in also trying to divine the intentions of president assad. clearly the rebels in syria have had a very good few -- past few weeks and making advances on the capital of damascus and president assad really feels like his back may be up against the wall. but is he desperate enough now to play this card which would almost certainly draw some kind of western response. >> rose: one more time, the red line is simply moving the chemical weapons? >> well, this is inter
effort. the other thing i think that is striking is the way in which he really kicks into action the whole of the whitehall bureaucracy which has worked quite efficiently under neville chamberlain. he was not a fool. he was a good administrator but churchill has these famous, what would now be like post-it kind of things which says action this dayment and if he wants some minor bureaucrat to get going on an issue, he put, you know, action today on a memo. he's interrogating the whole bureaucracy, kind of like john kennedy used to do. don't just take it from the immediate person below you. find out what's going on. and you can see in some of the diaries of civil servants this sense that suddenly the machine is just gearing up to a completely different level. and 245 sense of a dynamo at work is the other thing that is really important. >> and it is, of course, a conjunction of him realizing that his position is unique. i felt as if i was walking with destiny. but also the conjunction is with a nation and a people who are at a unique point in their history. it's very easy now to ju
of that 40 minutes. that somehow when it comes to action, you par. extraordinary. >> well thank you very very much. that was a very logistically challenging sequence to shoot, but fascinating. i mean obviously. >> rose: why fascinating. >> why fascinating. because just learning about the methodology how the special forces operate. for instance you know the way they move, there's a kind of methodical nature to the way they move, very careful, very considered. and having to shoot in a quote/unquote low light condition because it was meant to be a moonless night. so we were shooting, we decided, we opted for a digital format in order to do that. we also used real night vision lenses that we put on to the lens themselves. so then we had to go into of no light conditions so that those lenses would operate, they would operate, you know, to the best of their ability. so that was basically we had to figure out all the logistics, all the choreography. we built that compound from the ground up, and it had to be built with a really pretty serious foundation because of the black helicopters and the roto
. if this moment passes in to memory without action from washington, it will be a stain upon our nation's commitment to protecting the innocence innocent including our children. >> rose: i'm pleased to have mayor bloomberg back at this table. >> thank you for having me. >> rose: on "meet the press" yesterday, at a press conference today you believe that the time is now, that this is the moment to act, and at the same time you are chastising the president for-- i believe the time was a long time ago, the president gave a speech after the massacre in a-- aurora, colorado, saying we have to do something. here we are two years later, another 21,000 people in america killed with guns. we've done nothing. i mean, you know, i don't know at what point you have to say enough is enough. we've been killing 34 americans every single day. that's bigger than virginia tech. every single day. and you done cover it because it's 34 separate occurrences around the country. and it doesn't grab the public's imagination, psyche, sympathy, there's just-- you don't get a visceral reaction when it's people you
in chief, not the consoler in chief. he talked about immediate action. we need it, even if he doesn't win if getting it through congress, at least he should stand up and say this is what i believe, this is the law that should be passed. i am going to send it to congress, and if they don't vote it isn't that i am not going to have tried at least. but to be afraid of sending anything because he's to the going to win, that's ridiculous. >> rose: do you think that's the reason he hasn't followed up on his instincts? >> you got to ask him. you know, i don't know. i'm disappointed that he has not. i was disa pointed in mitt romney. mitt romney when he was governor of massachusetts had passed and signed an assault weapon ban. and then when he ran for the republican nomination totally went in the other direction and never went back during the general election. and i said in pie endorsement, i would have seriously considered mitt romney if he had just kept the values that he had when he was governor rdz if you talked to the president since this awful thing happened in connecticut. >> no, no, i hav
the action is. what we're saying is, look, industrial companies stay out of that at their own peril. it's no longer a day where you say "i'm going to make the engine and let a software guy decide how it flies." that's what we're focused on. >> rose: are there businesses that still now are in the part of g.e. that you want to spin off or do you have the core companies for the future? >> i think we've got the best portfolio we've had in a decade. financial services is a lot smaller than the last time i was on your show, for obvious reasons. but we're in the range of 60% to 70% of the country is industrial 30% to 40% is financial. that's a pretty good balance for us. so i'd say we're about where we'd like to see the company and places where we have real competitive advantage. >> rose: someone once said the way to judge g.e. executives-- this may have been one of your predecessors-- is how they allocate capital and evaluate people. do you agree with that? >> i think there are certain core competencys that go with the company that we do as a collective. capital allocation is clearly one of t
action to prevent more tragedies like this regardless of the politics. this evening michelle and i will do what i know every parent in america will do, which is ha r hold our children a little tighter and we'll tell them that we love them. and we'll remind each other how deeply we love one another but there are families in connecticut who cannot do that tonight. and they need all of us right now. in the hard days to come that community needs us to be at our best as americans, and i will do everything in my power as president to help. because while nothing can fill the space of a lost child or loved one, all of us can extend a hand to those in need, to remind them that we are there for them, that we are praying for them, and that the love they felt for those they lost endures not just in their memory-- memories but also in ours. may god bless the memory of the victims. and in the words of scripture, heal the broken hearted, and bind up their wounds. >> rose: flags at the white house and the capitol are flying at half-mast in recognition of one of the worst school shootings in americ
cuts on income over 1 million. >> we house republicans are taking concrete actions to avoid the fiscal cliff. absent a balanced offer from the president, this is our nation's best option. and senate democrats should take up both of these measures immediately. and the president has a decision to make. he can support these measures or be responsible for reckless spending and the largest tax hike in american history. >> rose: the white house has pledged to veto plan b as 2012 comes to a close it remains to be seen whether law lakers will rise above partisanship or avert fiscal crisis. joining me al hunt and july yana goldman. we want to talk about the fiscal cliff. we want to talk about white house appointments. we want to talk about gun control and we want to talk about hearings on capitol hill involving benghazi. but i'm pleased to have my friend julianna goldman and al hunt. and al joins me this evening in recognizing that i didn't have a tie, so he joins me. so thank you, sir. >> i love the look, charles. you've been covering the fiscal cliff, where are we? >> it is a big question, it
initiate an action that assured their own destruction? >> well, one thing about the iranian leaders that they have in common with the leaders of terrorist groups like bin laden, they are not strapping on the suicide bombs, they are very willing to see young people and handicapped people and so on strap these things on, but their lives mean a lot to them, and that is something in our hip pocket it seems to me. they want to stay alive and they want to stay in power. >> rose: i want to talk about that. one quick question about what you believe with respect to iran. you believe that an attack by rael will be a terrible thing to happen, because it would only delay the inevitable acquisition of nuclear weapons and that kind of capability? delay not destroy? >> first of all it won't destroy the nuclear program, and i would say that within the framework of a limited attack neither could we. we might delay it more or longer than the israelis, but i believe you can't put the technology back in the bottle and i think they would just go more covert and go deeper, i think you would would rally
the camp were being used for other things, including the missing in action soldier who is now a prisoner of war, having walked off his base. including a different military operation north of camp keating, including president karzai not wanting mcchrystal to close down any bases before the august 2009 election because that would signal weakness, including the fact that mcchrystal and obama were engaged in a back-and-forth about troop levels and mcchrystal's report about how many troops should come to the country. >> and mcchrystal told colonel george he didn't want to get ahead of the president is one point where he was being sensitive after many, many back and forth about whether or not the generals he was trying to exert too much power. >> ultimately he made the decision to delay it and i think there were a lot of people who were very upset about that. >> rose: why did they call it camp keating. >> ben keating was the second in command at combat outpost what was then called camp can desh. >> camp keating was a young man from, his parent were ministers, he was very devout republican who
in europe, where right now, europe is quiet and all the action is in the united states, my european friends, policy friends are thrilled that they are not on tv in the united states, that everybody is worried about the fiscal cliff, but europe is still a mess, i mean governor, of the central bank governor mario grogy just kind of said let there be money and that provided liquidity and protection but it hasn't provided the fundamental change in europe. that still, you know, is simmering beneath the surface. i think in the united states, this immediate political shenanigans will get cleaned up, the fiscal cliff, but what i worry is that we won't see a big reform and that is really what i would like to see. we can look across to china also, there is a change in leadership, their economy is stabilized but you talk about bubbles, there is a lot of signs of them in china, and you can say that, you know, it is nothing, they will still grow but there are plenty of concerns around the world. i am hopeful the united states will stabilize housing will continue to strengthenness, employment will stabil
. in a playback scenario, okay, charlie, turn over, action, 4, 3, 2, 1, oh, no, charlie you're out, just the tinniest bit, go again. it's not a great place to start on the emotional journey. >> rose: this really is better for the actors. >> oh my gosh, it's like having the handcuffs taken off. i actually did a production of oklahoma which we filmed. and we were told the only way to do it was to lip sync to it. and i remember t was a brutal experience because it was actually from the soundtrack which we had previously done nine months before. so i had been playing the role for nine months. i felt like it was a whole different character, by the time we went to do it i was so hamstrung by that performance. with tom i was totally on board. because of course there are challenges, but ultimately it gives you such freedom as an acker to be spontaneous to actually act the piece rather than-- to ever feel like are you singing it. >> rose: are you most at home in these musicals and places where you can sing and dance? >> you know, wordly, i was a theatre graduate like-- there was a musical theatre
